This specialization recognizes LaSalle Solutions as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support comprehensive Cisco Unified Communications solutions.

The Cisco Advanced Unified Communications Specialization is designed to help Cisco resale channel partners -- whether small to medium-sized businesses or enterprise-scale organizations -- meet a wide range of customer needs. It allows partners to focus on unified communications market opportunities that require advanced product knowledge and the ability to deploy solutions over multiple sites and geographies.

The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides partners with the training required to build sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills, and then validates their skills through a third-party audit. Cisco resale partner certifications -- Select, Premier, Silver and Gold -- represent an increasing breadth of skills across key technologies and a partner's ability to deliver integrated networking solutions. Cisco resale partner specializations -- SMB, Express, Advanced and Master -- reflect an increasing depth of sales, technical and service expertise in particular technologies.
